Welcome back to Longbox Junk and the second half of All-New Guardians of The Galaxy!

I came into this series with only basic knowledge of the characters gained from the movies and found it to be a pretty decent new reader-friendly gateway into the comic book versions of the Guardians of The Galaxy. . .at first.

Continuing with my attempt to connect a bit more with modern mainstream Marvel comics (with the assistance of my new Longbox Junk collaborator, my comic lovin' daughter), I've been given this fairly short and recent run of Guardians of The Galaxy to consider.

I have to admit that I really have no knowledge of Guardians of The Galaxy outside of the movies, which I think (in my extremely humble opinion) are some of the best Marvel has on offer.  But I wouldn't mind learning a little more.

 From what I understand, this series was created for people JUST like me, who got a taste of The Guardians with the movies and want some more of their adventures.  It features the same team line-up and similar character designs from the movies, and even though it fits into established comic continuity, it sort of trims things down a bit for new readers.  In other words, this is supposed to be a comic that's been shaped by the movies more so than other Marvel titles.
